Three men used force to break into the house via the front door on Friday evening. In the scuffle that followed both those present in the house, a married couple, were injured.
The police were called and they were able to detain the culprits in the Herbebamstraat thanks to the help of a number of local residents.
The Bilzen Local Police Service called in assistance from the neighbouring Lanaken-Maasmechelen Local Police Service to help them arrest the home invaders. The three suspects will appear before an Examining Magistrate. The Judicial Authorities are requesting that they remain in custody.
